what they are. what you are hearing, by the way, it is not dissimilar to what i hear in maryland and what regulators are here across the country. bank lending is not where it should be. part of it has to do with the lack of robust demand. you will hear a lot about -- a lot of in a boat -- an adult about how there are not enough borrowers. we also hear stories about credit-worthy borrowers. they have credible cash flows. the bankers did not have to be dependent on the week collateral coming from real- estate. there is cash flow here. these are borrowers that can sustain new loans. why does borrowers are not able to get loans is a challenge. i think we need to do some work on that. significantly, banks lending to small businesses is a critical factor in spurring employment. the notion of getting this right will also have good consequences for employment. >> does anybody else want to jump in on that conversation? >> the federal reserve has just concluded before-on sessions we have had around the country in which we tried to bring together lenders, small-business owners, and others t

's a dash tough issue for the administration. maryland today, today, mari landreu says it's a big mistake. we'll likely hear from ken salazar. the fifth circuit court of appeals upholding the lower court ruling saying that you can't have this in place. now the administration is coming forward with another way to block this drilling for a short time until they figure out exactly, they say, the safest and most effective way to oversee the drilling at depths more than 500 feet. the problem is that this is effecting, according to the drilling industry, more than $330 million a month in wages with these different companies, affecting some 33 rigs, at least one of them has already picked up and gone out of the area, and that is what lawmakers down there in the gulf region are really worried about when it comes to jobs and the economy after this spill. jenna: from an outsiders view it's an interesting dynamic set up between the federal government and states. not only do you have the federal government with this insistence on a moratorium and the gulf states really worried about jobs in that loca
